    To see how students across the country really felt about school shootings, we put out an open request for students to send us their thoughts. Here are some of their responses.

    Gun violence, particularly school shootings, ranks among the most contentious issues in America. Since the February 14, 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, mass shootings have again become a staple of the news cycle.

    This school shooting is distinguished from previous ones, because students around the nation have rallied to organize for safer schools. Whether that means stricter gun control, metal detectors, regulating ammunition sales, or arming teachers, remains unclear.

    For more insights, take a look at the national polling of young Americans on gun control: http://bit.ly/2G68EHdThe polling indicates that while young Americans are divided on gun restriction measures, many are decidedly not fans of the NRA.

    Teachers with guns isn’t the best choice. Teachers can also start shootings. They could literally overpower you by having a gun to your head, making every else in the class, scared.

    I think students who've been around gun shootings are more qualified to speak about the shootings than keyboard warriors who sit at home and pretend they're experts. Why so many dislikes for this video?

    I mean, to all you people who believe in having a gun on your to stop a shooter. I can't find any school shootings on the internet after 20 mins of research in the U.K since handguns were banned. It took me one search into google it says, that on average there is one school shooting per week. I understand how much safer you feel being able to access guns to eliminate guns, but on a real note the facts speak for themselves.

    +Ray Ramone you make me laugh, you think an M16 will do anything against tanks f22 f35 and over a million trained soldiers? If the government wanted to take full control they'd just do it

    Congratulations you just got played, the government plans school shootings so they can scare people and eventually get away with editing the constitution and taking away our gun rights. Then they will have absolute control and martial law will begin

    Its absolutely sad that students have to consciously think of a space where they think they'll run and hide in case of such shootings. 'Moment the library lights go out...', this constant fear is downright depressing.

    For me if a school shooter comes to my school I'll run out of the classroom and go after the d-bag I'll stop him or die trying
